It is a normal part of being human to experience emotional distress. This distress can take many forms including feeling low in mood, anxious or stuck and unsure which way to turn. I am skilled at working with children, young people and adults, at helping them make sense of the difficulties and distress that they are feeling and to make positive changes that improve their quality of life.
I have a special interest in working with people who have been affected by a life-changing event, accident or chronic health condition. I appreciate that all too easily life can come to revolve around the condition or experience, and the person’s sense of self or ability to enjoy life can be stripped away. I am passionate about the role that therapy can have to support someone in stepping back into their lives and reconnecting with what is important to them, even in difficult circumstances.
Since qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist over 10 years ago I have worked within child and adolescent mental and physical health services within the NHS. During this time I worked regularly with children, young people and with parents. I have also worked for the Exeter University Clinical Psychology Doctorate that trains Clinical Psychologists. As part of Green Shoots Psychology since 2014 I have worked across the age range and am based in Brighton.
I have a proven history of delivering high quality, informative and enjoyable training and teaching on psychological matters to people from a range of backgrounds. I also enjoy offering supervision to colleagues and have attended the supervisors training run by the University of Surrey Clinical Psychology Doctorate.
